This article aims to report the successful treatment of 2 patients with intractable chronic pelvic pain treated with transforaminal sacral nerve neurostimulation. At 18-month follow-up, both patients reported significant pain relief and improved performance. The implantation of a percutaneous transforaminal sacral nerve neurostimulator is usually reserved for the treatment of bladder incontinence. In both reported cases, it proved to be useful for pain management. This technique should be evaluated in clinical trials.
